Pain left side under arm near breast
I have been having a sharp pain on the left side between my under arm and left breast.  I am concerned as my mother died of a heart attack in her 50's.  I am 38 years old.  My veins seem to be getting more apparent in my breast area and my legs.  I sometimes have a tightness in my legs and it feels like my veins are going to snap.  I sometimes also get a little numbess in my left arm.  Should I be concerned?

    Premenopausal women are generally well protected from heart disease.  After menopause, men and women develop heart disease at about equal rates.  However, with your family history, I think it would be to your advantage to start now and see a cardiologist for a comprehensive evaluation.  Aggressive prevention now would likely help you later on.
